Marlin fishing has got gotten much better this week, fish are hitting ballyhoo and live bait. Fishing from the 1150 and the 95 spots on the Sea of Cortez, all fish starting to show at the Lighthouse on the Pacific side. Water temps are starting to warm up.
We caught and released 3 marlins on Sunday, 3 on Monday, 2 on Tuesday, 2 on Wednesday, 1 on Thursday, 1 on Friday and 1 today.
A few of the yachts have been going 50 to 60 miles off shore and catching a few on the pacific, small fish, not worth the run.
A few roosters starting to show.
Inshore fishing has been very good for small snapper, small grouper and other bottom fish I have no idea what the names are but great to eat. The sierras have been hard to find, just a few on hoochies. The roosters are starting to show up, small fish but anytime the big boys should up.
The weather has been super nice, not too hot, mid 80's, no wind.

Jc's Sportfishing Charters is a family owned and operated business and has been fishing in Cabo San Lucas for the past 18 years. Jerry, explains that his charter business is geared more for families and novice anglers, making sure everyone who charters a boat with him have a great time and lots of fun. We welcome families, and groups. We want everyone who fishes with us to take all the sites in and have a memorable experience. This is what is most important to us. We have and do a few tournaments each year and can cater to fisherman who might be interested in tournament fishing. Well let's get on with the fishing report for this past week.

FROM THE ADMIRALS KITCHEN!
Pan-Seared Grouper with Balsamic Brown Butter Sauce.
4 (4- to 6-oz.) fresh grouper fillets
1 teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon minced shallot
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
Preheat oven to 425°. Pat fish dry with paper towels, and let stand at room temperature 10 minutes. Sprinkle fillets with salt and pepper.
Heat oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Carefully place fillets, top side down, in hot oil. Cook 3 to 4 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned. Transfer skillet to oven.
Bake at 425° for 4 to 5 minutes or until fish is opaque. Remove skillet from oven, and place fish, seared side up, on a platter.
Wipe skillet clean. Cook butter in skillet over medium heat 2 to 2 1/2 minutes or until butter begins to turn golden brown. Pour butter into a small bowl. Whisk in vinegar, shallot, and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper.
SEARING IS BEST FOR: Nearly any type of fish, but is easiest with firm fillets that are at least 1 1/2 inches thick, such as grouper, halibut, sea bass, and striped bass.
EXPERT ADVICE: Make sure the pan is hot before adding fish. Press very lightly with a spatula while cooking for even searing.
2 1/2 oz. rum
3 oz. pineapple juice
1 oz. coconut cream
Start with the rum. Then combine with unsweetened pineapple juice (you can sub in 3 ounces crushed or whole pineapple), and coconut cream in a blender. Blend on high with a cup or so of crushed ice, or 5 or 6 ice cubes. Pour into a tall glass. Garnish with whatever you've got.
BEWARE: Please beware of the guys in the street selling boat charters. If you wait till the day you are fishing and go to the dock where your boat is many times people will mislead you to another boat or dock trying to put you on a boat that was not meant for you. You need to have a person guide you to your boat, who is from a reputable charter company. This way there is no confusion or misleading. Please remember when renting Sport fishing boats in Cabo that you rent your boat from reputable and established business. Walk into a fishing fleet office and ask questions about what you are getting and what are the costs. You don't want to rent boats from vendors in the streets and you do not want to book through shady websites offering you the world. Check through travel forums about reputable fishing fleets to deal with. Look for testimonials about the fleet your booking, your charter with. Ask about what will the boat be supplying? Will it include beverages or lunches? How much does it cost to fillet your catch? Check to see if charter boat is insured? Ask about getting your catch smoked? Check cost of a fishing license. These are just a few things to consider when booking your charter boat. We will be talking more about this in the next weeks fishing report. Until next time good fishing and we hope to see you in Cabo soon. Come by the office here in Cabo and get all the latest up to date fishing report.
